GAME RECAP (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE)
(KANSAS CITY) - Showing the natives of Kansas City a few stunts in the gentle art of forward passing, the Green Bay Packers pranced home a 17 to 6 winner over the Blues in a pro league football game Thursday afternoon at Muehlbach field before a slim sized crowd.
It was a great exhibition of footballing and the Kansas
City eleven gasped for breath as they saw pass after
pass thrown over their heads for substantial gains. The
Bays' air drive never looked better. Voss was grabbing
'em on all sides while O'Donnell and Mathys horned into
the limelight with due regularity. Towards the close of
the game, the Kaws tore a leaf out of the Packers book
and got away with several clever tosses which helped to
pave the way for their only score.
FUMBLE ON FIVE YARD LINE
But the touchdown wasn't made without an effort,
however, as the Big Bay Blues forward wall held tight for
three downs. Strauss finally smashed across on the
fourth rush. The Bays broke the ice in the first quarter
when Lambeau, standing on the 40-yard line, made a
beautiful dropkick. Even the Kansans admitted it was
quite some boot. There was nothing doing in the second
quarter, although the Bays should have had a marker as
Dutch Hendrian fumbled on the Kaws' 5-yard line, first
down, goal to go. In the third quarter, the Packers
speeded up their air drive and on the crossover pass
Lambeau tossed to Voss, who made a sensational
catch and fell over the goal line for a score. Buck added
the extra point. Early in the final frame, the Bays put
across another touchdown, thanks to the Voss-
Lambeau combination. Then as if to add insult to injury,
the Packers added the point after touchdown by
passing instead of kicking. Buck hurled the ball and
Lambeau made the catch. The team came out of the
game in good shape. The Packers leave here Friday
night for Racine where they will play on Sunday.
